Blue Gold – Movie Event August 8th

“The world’s fresh water is disappearing. As we pollute and waste away our very limited supply, corporate giants are working to make the building block of our globe a commodity, privatizing developing countries’ fresh water. In the midst of this, military control of water is rising, setting the stage for world water wars. This international award-winning film follows various examples of people fighting back against the powers that be – from grade school protests to court cases to revolutions.

In BLUE GOLD: WORLD WATER WARS, based on the book of the same name, we follow numerous worldwide examples of people fighting for their basic right to water, from court cases to violent revolutions to U.N. conventions to revised constitutions to local protests at grade schools. As Maude Barlow proclaims, “This is our revolution, this is our war”. A line is crossed as water becomes a commodity. Will we survive?”

Sustainable North Grenville is pleased to announce that we will be screening the movie ‘BLUE GOLD: WORLD WATER WARS’  at the Branch Restaurant on Monday, August 8th.
The movie will start at 7:00PM with available light buffet, coffee and sweets by donation. A cash bar is also available. Door open at 6:45PM. $5.00 admission at the door.
